MOSCOW, March 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia hopes that an intensive dialogue between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran will be productive, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
The diplomat recalled that “the groups of IAEA experts headed by the IAEA deputy general director have already paid two visits to Iran from the beginning of this year in the dialogue between the IAEA and Iran.” “We welcome the resumption of intensive cooperation between the parties concerned to make clear the issues over the so-called suspected military research under the Iranian nuclear program, which is being implemented in line with the IAEA Board of Governors resolution on Iran approved in November 2011,” Lukashevich said.
“The sides are working on the modality of this cooperation, considering an opportunity for visits of IAEA specialists to several Iranian facilities during forthcoming visits of the IAEA inspection groups to Iran. We hope that these contacts will turn out to be productive, but it is premature to make far-sighted conclusions now,” he underlined.
